WARNING: enabling "trust" authentication for local connections
You can change this by editing pg_hba.conf or using the option -A, or
--auth-local and --auth-host, the next time you run initdb.

Success. You can now start the database server using:

    postgres -D /usr/local/var/postgres
    pg_ctl -D /usr/local/var/postgres -l logfile start


$ mkdir -p ~/Library/LaunchAgents
$ cp /usr/local/Cellar/postgresql/9.3.5_1/homebrew.mxcl.postgresql.plist ~/Library/LaunchAgents/
$ launchctl load -w ~/Library/LaunchAgents/homebrew.mxcl.postgresql.plist

手动启动 postgresql

$ pg_ctl -D /usr/local/var/postgres -l /usr/local/var/postgres/server.log start


pg_ctl -D /usr/local/var/postgres -l /usr/local/var/postgres/server.log status


$ pg_ctl -D /usr/local/var/postgres -l /usr/local/var/postgres/server.log stop -s -m fast

如果出现 FATAL: Ident authentication failed for user,是因为:

This is because by default PostgreSQL uses ‘ident’ authentication i.e it checks if the username exists on the system. You need to change authentication mode to ‘trust’ as we do not want to add a system user. Modify the settings in “pg_hba.conf” to use ‘trust’ authentication.

请修改 /usr/local/var/postgres/pg_hba.conf 为:

host    all             all               trust
# IPv6 local connections:
host    all             all             ::1/128                 trust

安装 pgadmin,下载地址:


$ brew uninstall postgres


$ launchctl unload -w ~/Library/LaunchAgents/homebrew.mxcl.postgresql.plist
$ rm -rf ~/Library/LaunchAgents/homebrew.mxcl.postgresql.plist
